A wealth of information here and it's a bit overwhelming :- I also scanned an old edition of the Lonely Planet and have a general idea of our trip but would appreciate getting some thoughts from the experts. I hope these questions will be useful for others. For context my wife and I are travelling with our two teen girls, will not be renting a car and not too tight on budget will save where it makes sense, safety and relative comfort are important. Is the following worth visiting?

How a Bicycle Can Change a Girl's Life in Guatemala
Guatemala is a predominantly poor country that struggles in several areas of health and development, including infant, child, and maternal mortality, malnutrition, literacy, and contraceptive awareness and use. The country's large indigenous population is disproportionately affected. Guatemala is the most populous country in Central America and has the highest fertility rate in Latin America.

Shocking video has emerged of a flu-ridden year-old Guatemalan migrant writhing in pain on the floor of a U. Border Patrol cell where he lay for several hours before he was found dead. He is one of at least six children to have died since December after being detained by border agents.
He had good reason to think so: the family, which lives in a small, remote subsistence farming community only accessible by a winding dirt road, had lost all of its maize and beans in and after an unusual drought. This year, experts predict similar conditions. The oldest, a year-old boy, still had the frame of a child years younger, as does Juan in photos.
